This place was the first in our list and it is certainly away from the city. One should go early as it gets really hot. Do not carry any bags else you will have to wait and deposit them as security is strict. The pandas were friendly and no cheating around in this place

It is a great place for worship. When i was there i got to hear from a lot of people that this temple is famous for it's glory. What ever you ask for god fulfil that if you have a true heart with a true desire. Evening aarti is really enjoyable. Good place to see

It represents an excellent opportunity for the tourists to understand the Hindu spirituality. It is believed to be the place where goddess Kali appeared before ramakrishna and here the god is known as Maa Bhavabatarini Kali.

A place of worship for Hindu devotees. One should guard against the "Pandas". They are very exploiting in nature

It was a Sunday and the temple was crowded. Though it was very hot and crowded we had good darshan. Took a boat ride from Dakshineshwar to Belur Math. The view from boat is very good.
